      TURN ($1.71) J:spade: 2:club: 8:heart: 5:club:

      Hero checks, BTN checks

      RIVER ($1.71) J:spade: 2:club: 8:heart: 5:club: 6:heart:

      [color=red]Hero checks

      I was considering of barreling the turn or the river but eventually I gave up since I thought that he had a lot of J's and some times some pocket 10's which he doesn't fold in his range. Although, since he checks the turn, doesn't that mean that he could be weak here? If he was a J, wouldn't he bet the turn to protect his hand from the draws?

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop cbetting is good.

      When he calls here, I think checking turn is fine.
      I doubt we have too much fold equity here on this card.

      As played, I think checking the river is fine.
      When he checks the turn it means that he has showdown value, so I don't expect us to have any fold equity here at all.
